MT-Yidaki Shop

Yiḏaki and mago are the original didgeridoo’s played by aboriginal people in the northern part of the Northern Territory, mainly in Arnhemland. These very diverse groups of people have these instruments in their culture since many generations.

Michiel's aim is to bring you high quality yiḏaki and mago of the highest cultural integrity. All the instruments are hand selected and made by traditional people on traditional land.

Since 2011 Michiel decided to re-invest a part of his annual proceedings as a didgeridoo player/teacher back in to Arnhem land culture. Which led to a shop full of instruments selected for their playability.

If you are looking for something particular feel free to drop a line and he will do his best to source it for you!

This yiḏaki was collected in the 1950’s-60’s. And shows signs of extensive use. It is in excellent condition and it is rare for an instrument of this age to still play. It was collected over 50 years ago probably at the Yirrkala mission. At that time the only permanent balanda setlement in Yirrkala were the airforce base and a few missions. The Mission in Yirrkala started a small art and craft industry to suply museums and private collectors.
It sounds and plays like any good yiḏaki!
